Majority leader Harry Reid, in a press conference with other top Democrats, promised that the Senate health care legislation would be posted online tonight.
Reid said the bill would reduce the deficit and strengthen Medicare by eliminating waste, fraud and abuse from the system.
"The finish line is really in sight," he said, and expressed optimism that the bill would pass. But he was evasive when asked specifically whether he already has lined up the 60 votes needed to bring the bill to the floor, telling reporters that they would have to ask individual Senators.
UPDATE: Sen. John Cornyn, via Twitter, says the bill is 2,074 pages.
UPDATE 2: Here it is.
